Smoke Stack by guest artist Jim McVicker
I was painting early this morning, Sat. the 19th, in Blue Lake. John Crater and Rick Tolley were with me standing on the levy along the Mad River. We were all painting views looking north towards the mountain and town of Blue Lake. The fog had not quite burned off, very frustrating, but to the west of us the sun was hitting a factory and making it glow against the fog filled sky. John said he would give me twenty bucks if I did a painting in twenty minutes. I painted this in ten minutes. I think he owes me double. The sun came out and we had a great day of painting.
